Despite its name, ringworm isn’t actually caused by a worm or any type of living parasite. Instead, it’s a skin condition that’s caused by a type of fungus called tinea. It lives on the dead tissues of skin, including your nails and hair.

Ringworm causes a red, scaly, itchy patch on your skin. Over time, it takes the shape of a circle or a ring (or several rings). This is where the name “ringworm” comes from.

You can get ringworm on your skin and nails. It’s most common on the arms and the scalp, but you can get it anywhere on your skin, including your face.

If ringworm develops in different areas, it may be called by a different name. For example, when it affects the groin area, it’s referred to as jock itch.

When it affects the area between your toes, it’s called athlete’s foot.

below are the ingredients needed to treat ringworms


  • Salt
